The Facebook Wall were employees and visitors are encouraged to "write something"

Yesterday (Feb. 25), Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg sent an internal message to Facebook employees requesting that they stop crossing out "Black Lives Matter" and replacing it with "All Lives Matter" on The Facebook Wall at the company's Menlo Park, California corporate office.

In his message Zuckerberg called these racist acts "malicious" and explained to Facebook employees that "Black lives matter doesn't mean other lives don't matter -- it's simply asking that the [B]lack community also achieve[] the justice they deserve."

Zuckerberg also noted that "crossing out something means silencing speech, or that one person's speech is more important than another's."

The Facebook CEO ended his message by encouraging his employees to attend Facebook's "Black@" town hall meeting on Friday, March 4, 2016, to educate themselves on the Black Lives Matter movement.

*Destiny Child's voice* Question!: Why Is It That "All Lives" Didn't Start To Matter Until We Started Saying "Black Lives Matter"????

I'm extremely tired of these "All Lives Matter" trolls popping up anytime people assert that "Black Lives Matter" as a way to bring attention to racism in this country towards Blacks-- be it in the criminal just-us system, the media, environmentally, etc... 

None of these trolls appeared to be waving the "All Lives Matter" banner when this happened or this happened

Where were y'all? *crickets*

The irony! Please know that I searched for a GIF more representative of my point but had to settle for Miss Colorless USA  

Yet anytime people chant, hashtag, or simply write "Black Lives Matter" on The Facebook Wall as a way of showing Black pride and/or unity with a movement that has been bringing attention to the senseless killing and poisoning of Black people in this country at the hands of U.S. law enforcement and officials, out come the "All Lives Matter" devils trying to distract, disrupt and silence the Black Lives Matter movement. 

Well it ain't happenin'!

Coincidentally, today (Feb. 26) marks the 4th anniversary of the murder of unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin at the hands of George Zimmerman, a morbidly obese, lowlife, unremorseful, self-appointed neighborhood watchman. 

Thank you Trayvon for inspiring me and millions of people around the world to get involved in the Black Lives Matter movement. Rest peacefully Trayvon.
